HELP IN A CRISIS

I work part time on Mondays and Thursdays, but aim to return calls within one working day.

 

I do not offer a crisis service, so if you need psychological support out of a pre-arranged session, the following guidance may be of help:

NHS Advice on Dealing with a Mental Health Crisis or Emergency


A mental health crisis often means that you no longer feel able to cope or be in control of your situation. You may feel great emotional distress or anxiety, cannot cope with day-to-day life or work, think about suicide or self-harm, or experience hallucinations and hearing voices. In an emergency, or life threatening situation, don't hesitate to call 999 or visit A&E. Alternatively, call 111 for advice over the phone or click on the link below for contact details for support organisations to help those at risk and their family or friends.
